    True bigotry is applying different standards to the same thing because of reasons like race, religion, sexual orientation, or politics. It's bigotry to view every act of violence by a Muslim as an act of terrorism, but call this an "accident" or the act of a mentally disturbed person. This guy is no more or less disturbed than the 9/11 hijackers. Nine people died. Those people aren't any less valuable than the three who died in at the marathon bombing or the five who died in Benghazi.

    If you're white, and have conservative friends, then you've heard lots of casual racism, to the point that it's not remarkable. It's no different than the way anti-us sentiments are casually thrown about in fundamentalist Islam.

    You may think that these comments are innocent. But they're really not. They dehumanize groups of people. It's us the hardworking white person who contributes to society and them the welfare queen black person who just takes. Aside from being factually false, this dehumanization is what gives people the justification to kill. Monsters don't think they're being monstrous, they're sacrificing themselves to do what they think must be done.

    If we expect Muslims to police their fringe elements, then we should no less from ourselves. Anything else is true bigotry.
    I'm white, have Conservative friends and I'm not sure what you mean by " Casual racism ".

    Because I have yet to hear any of my Conservative friends mention anything that would qualify as being racist on a casual level.

    Maybe you can help me out. Let me know what comments qualify as being causally racist.

    just stop the dishonesty. crime control has nothing to do with your complaints about gun ownership
    It's an analogy.

    Apparently your victim mentality doesn't allow you to process them.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Nope. Read the analogy a bit closer, uninvolved observer.

    Oh, god, yes she totally, openly, is a white supremacist. Well, unless you mean that she is a "white nationalist" as opposed to a "white supremacist." Personally, I don't think those distinctions matter, but if they do matter to you, I'd be fine with categorizing her as a white nationalist instead if you prefer.

    Please. We ALL make racist comments and jokes in private. It's ludicrous to pretend otherwise.

    No thanks, I got it right - you're basically trolling this thread with a bunch of unrelated games and smart ass comments that have nothing to do with the subject of the OP.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    However other countries lock up the drug addicts who commit violent crimes early in their careers and do not give them multiple second third and fourth chances before they do hard time. By the time violent offenders do any hard time in the US, they are hardened professional criminals.

    I'll take that as an admission on your part that those in the gun control movement are going after all gun owners rather then restricting their efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and lunatics.
